PHIL Parkinson received a major boost today after defender Christopher Routis became Bradford City's fifth new signing of the week by putting pen to paper on a one-year deal.

 The French/Swiss defender signed his contract with the club at Valley Parade this Friday afternoon. The deal also includes a further one-year option in the favour of the club.

 His arrival comes after the signings of Ben Williams, Mo Shariff, Matt Urwin and Filipe Morais earlier this week.

 The 24 year-old has been on trial with the club for the last three weeks, featuring in the friendlies against Ossett Town, Blackburn Rovers, Bradford Park Avenue and Hartlepool United before agreeing his City contract.

The defender will need to receive international clearance before he can feature for Phil Parkinson's side.

 He will wear shirt number 18 for the 2014/2015 campaign.

 Born in Geneva Switzerland, Routis joins City on a free transfer after leaving Swiss Super League club Servette earlier this summer.

 Routis spent three years as a professional with Servette.

Hardly panic when Parky has spent all pre-season looking at him. The squad is looking much better than at the start of the week
